Weidmüller’s new RockStar ModuPlug is designed as a modular system consisting of modules, module frames and data inserts. The four module sizes allow for individual plug solutions that save a huge amount of space, and the smaller pitch also makes for an optimised design.

In order to create more flexibility, the use of modular systems has become widespread over recent years, though Weidmüller became one of the first providers to offer this type of system as far back as 1996. With the new RockStar® ModuPlug plug system, Weidmüller will start by offering ten modules, and will then gradually add more. The new system can also be obtained from the Weidmüller assembly service in ready-to-connect format: Benefits for customers include simplified ordering and lean stock-keeping, as only one order number is required and there is no longer any need to purchase the individual components separately.

The individual modules can be used to combine a large number of functions required for transferring power, signals and data within a single interface. Thanks to the wide range of module sizes, users can now fit more applications in one plug-in connector. RockStar ModuPlug reduces the amount of space required while also cutting costs compared with fixed-pole inserts and other modular plug connector systems.
